Papelbon in the clutch

Papelbon got Guerrero to foul off his first three offerings, before punching him out with a 97 mile per hour fastball.

Papelbon, who caught Garret Anderson looking at a 94-m.p.h. first-pitch strike, got out of the jam when he induced the Angels’ left fielder to fly out to left.

Wakefield’s line: 7 innings (plus one batter in eighth), 5 hits, 1 run (earned), 2 walks, 3 strikeouts. He threw 82 pitches, 53 for strikes.

Donnelly’s line: 1/3 of an inning, 1 hit batter.

Attendance: 35,946. It was the Sox’s third sellout of the season and 310th consecutive regular-season sellout.
